As the England captain enters the final year of his Tottenham contract, Harry Kane is once again the target of transfer rumors.
The No.10, who turns 30 at the end of the month, had a historic season with the North Londoners, becoming the club’s all-time leading goalscorer and scoring 30 goals in a Premier League season for the second time in his career.
Bayern Munich are currently the frontrunners, but they will struggle to persuade chairman Daniel Levy to surrender his star player.

July 18: The King has spoken
Tottenham legend Ledley King is the latest to express his wishes for Harry Kane to remain at the club this summer.
Speaking to Stats Perform, he said: “It’s always important to keep your best players, of course.
“I know he’s enjoying the training, he’s enjoying performing under Ange at the moment, and the rest we leave between him and the club to sort.”
July 17: Ange coy on Kane future
Ange Postecoglou has been quizzed on the future of Kane during their pre-season tour of Australia but remained calm when talking about his No10.
The Australian said: “I had a good chat with Harry. As I said before [in his first press conference], nothing earth-shattering or defining from I guess what people are seeking.
“I introduced myself and we spoke mainly about the club and where he thinks it’s at and where he thinks we can improve things. [We’ve been] training ever since, it’s been good. Me and Harry were perfectly aligned in that, we want to see a successful team this year.”
July 16: Bayern confident of Kane deal
Bayern president Uli Hoeness is confident Kane will join the Bundesliga club this summer.
Hoeness told Sport1: “Kane has clearly signalled in all conversations that his decision stands — and if it stays, then we’ll get him.
“He wants to play in Europe and luckily for us Tottenham will not be next year. He now has another opportunity to come to a top club in Europe.”
July 15: PSG join the race
Paris Saint-Germain are set to rival Bayern in the race to sign Kane.
The Independent say the French giants are convinced they can turn the Spurs talisman’s head after being handed assurances he is willing to play abroad.
Kane’s preference is said to still be Man Utd but the Red Devils are only interested in a free move next summer.
July 14: Levying a proposal
Spurs chairman Levy reportedly met with Bayern chief Jan-Christian Dressen on Thursday to discuss the possible transfer of Kane.
Sky Sports report that no meaningful progress was made but dialogue remains open, with the two parties still thought to be at loggerheads over the striker’s price tag.
The North Londoners will continue to try and persuade Kane to sign a lucrative new deal but fear he will sign for a Premier League rival if he allows his contract to run down.
